Unhappy So much for being hospitable.....

Yes, they advised us when we arrived at the door. Many of the dancers decided not to dance which was disappointing because there were a lot of fine dancers that showed up.

In addition, the grand entry was scheduled for 7pm on Friday, but didn't have lights set up for night dancing. The MC, 3 drums, dancers and the public waited around in the dark until 8:15 when lights were provided by the local rescue squad...grand entry finally started at around 8:30...

They didn't provide water for the drums or the dancers....as a matter of fact we were told to walk to the American Legion Building (at least 150 yards away) to use the water fountain! Have you ever heard of an organizer doing this?

They were too many vendors at this pow wow...especially since they had some who had come as far as Canada and upstate New York. I understand she had consulted with an experienced pow wow organizer months ago, but chose to ignore his advice.

It was evident that she lacked experience in organizing this pow wow.
